What I'd like...
Authored by: phillymjs on Jun 05, '03 02:12:07PM

...is a script or GUI utility that does "create new user based on existing user."

Right now I use a dummy account when doing system builds, then I go into NetInfo Manager and change names and file paths in the dummy account as needed, to approximate that sort of function. It's kind of a pain.

Anyone know a way to do this?

What would be even cooler, though, would be if that functionality was made into an option in Carbon Copy Cloner. :-)

Defalt User Template
Authored by: matx666 on Jun 05, '03 03:45:25PM

Not sure if this helps you, but for my "build" purposes I need additional accounts created to keep serials and authorizations of apps i install as admin in an admin account. The way to do this is to populate the Default User Template with the prefs and files which keep those SNs. some apps serialize themselves, but others like QT Pro and DVDSP and many others do not and do it by user (lame!)... so look in /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj for some answers.
